I am struggling to come to terms with the emotional abuse from my father that occurred several years ago. I feel like I shouldn't be feeling so hurt because the abuse occurred when I was a kid and now I'm 25. It's interesting that I am triggered by minor things and I always tell myself to get over myself. I feel like I am alone. Maybe things would have been better if I hadn't waited 13 years to disclose the physical abuse to my stepsister that my father made me watch. I just wonder if I am alone or if there are others out there who were emotionally abused as children.
